esela - The legal network for social impact and the Impact Investing Institute host an online panel on the topic of ‘Fiduciary Duty in a Changing World: Impact Investing - the Why and How'.
This event will explore - from legal and investor perspectives - why and how pension trustees can engage positively with impact investment in a way which is consistent with their fiduciary duties. It will also examine some of the governance and practical principles pension trustees and other fiduciaries will wish to follow in a rapidly changing world.
Speakers will present and discuss the conclusions of recent work by the Impact Investing Institute and its legal panel. Join the session for a first look at the ‘Impact Investment Code’, which outlines good governance principles for pension trustees.
The Impact Investing Institute warmly invites feedback on the discussion and the Code, and will provide opportunities to engage both during and following the event.
